If there is anything I can trust, it is my eyes. -Olga Fisch
The History Behind The NameA Hungarian artist and a collector par excellence, Olga Fisch immigrated to Ecuador in 1939 and soon recognized the vast potential of the folk artisan’s art of Ecuador. She was a humanist and a visionary whose main attribute, in her own words, was to “know how to recognize quality in a work of art “. She began working with Ecuadorian art throughout the country and guiding them to refine their artistic expressions so that the gap between folk art and traditional fine art could be linked. While inspiring other artists, Olga Fisch designed now famous tapestries and important Ecuadorian rugs.
